Together, we built a campaign infrastructure that helped us reach voters across the entire city and win every Ward. For that, I have to thank my campaign staff who executed our strategy tirelessly, our Leadership Advisory Team who expertly pushed and advised us at each stage, and our Ward Captains who pulled together our ground game and Get Out The Vote push. And I thank my Council office staff who do the hard work on behalf of residents every day with skill and passion. Voters saw that work.
Together, we navigated campaigning during the COVID-19 pandemic and an unprecedented election cycle. I’m humbled that you put your confidence in me to represent you. I will not let you down.
Right now, I’m up early with my four-year-old daughter, Madison, who had a bad dream. As we watch the presidential election results come in, I’m reminded of how important our work ahead is. Regardless of the outcome of the presidential race, we have to protect people, rebuild what we have lost, and unify our city in a difficult time.
Most of you know that the best part of me is my family – my wife, Christy, my daughters, Madison and Monroe, my dad, my siblings, aunts, uncles, and extended family across the city and country. I owe my service to them, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
Today, I wish you rest and recovery. Tomorrow, we unify and work.
